We will turn Type One into Type None

Welcome to our family JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes team page ~ Lennon's Instant Karma!

As you may know, our daughter, Maeve, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes (T1D) last fall and we were obviously devastated by the news.  The past several months has been very emotional and physically draining on our family so we are taking steps to help JDRF progressively remove the impact of type 1 diabetes (T1D) from people's lives until no one has to fear developing this disease.

By making a donation to JDRF, you'll raise money to help fund critical T1D research and create a world without T1D. Type 1 diabetes is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and changes life as they know it forever. It cannot be prevented and there is no cure. JDRF is the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D.  Every dollar JDRF is able to direct toward research comes from donors like you.

Our daughter has been a rock star dealing with this so far, but we want it to end. Daily challenges of life with T1D, which involves a 24/7, unrelenting cycle of blood sugar testing and insulin injections to manage the disease, is not fun for a seven year old.  Please help us by donating to our team and finding a cure to this disease!  

We appreciate all the love & support.
